SAN ANTONIO -- Students at Tejeda Middle School set up a Twitter page to offer positive messages to their peers who might be dealing with a tough issue: bullying.
Teachers manage the tweets for the T-Wolves Against Bullies or TAB.
Anytime a student notices a act of kindness on campus they can grab a paw print and write a positive note that is sent out as a tweet.
Through social media kids pick up so much, even mean and hurtful comments.
So this is a way to put a paws-itive spin on on what teens see online.
"We live with technology and it's hard cause it's right at the top of our fingers," said one 7th grader.
Kristen Guerra is a teacher and club sponsor for the anti-bully club.
She believes the Twitter page helps this group stand out at Tejeda, aside from their bright pink shirts.
"Oh,yeah. Around here a lot of people wear pink," group members joked.
There are about 50 club members and growing. The have a drop box on campus for students who are struggling to deal with a bully. They can leave an anonymous message asking for help.
TAB members have open ears and stand by ready to help someone who has been too afraid or ashamed to talk about bullies.
""Eventually, it going to get inside of you. If you don't tell somebody," said one club member.
Recently at the school, a guest speaker emphasized the need for students to speak out and stop people who threaten or harass others.
"We had kids that were crying, realizing how severe bullying is and how much damage it can really cause," said Guerra.
She volunteers time to help TAB and the group is preparing a video entry for a national contest featuring a music video about anti-bullying efforts.
Guerra is proud of her students who have been tweeting lots of good messages to inspire others.
